The TRUTH About Your BUNION
With the New Year having just passed, the general trend has been for the greater majority of our population to “move” more. Whether it is returning to Crossfit or starting a walking routine lunch time, exercising versus NOT exercising is seen as a good thing.
WELL, may be not?
More than 4.4 million people will report having a bunion this year. A bunion is growth on the that occurs when we don’t use our big toe to push off from as we take a step forward and instead use the inside part of our foot.
The problem with this is that the foot attaches to the lower leg which meets the upper thigh at the knee. The upper thigh connects into the hip which attaches itself to spine at the tailbone. If your foot is constantly hitting the ground the wrong way you will be creating stress throughout your entire body.
This could easily be the reason you have knee, hip, low back or even shoulder pain that doesn’t seem to away. Think about it for a second…every time that your foot rotates, your lower leg must rotate, so does your knee, hip…etc.
THAT is not good.
